First Thought when Finished: Night of the Living Deed had great characters, a solid mystery, and ghosts who added a bit of unusual to the story!

Story Thoughts: Confession: I picked up this book based on the fact that Amanda Ronconi narrated it. Yes I have gotten to the point where I will pick up books that I haven’t heard of because of the narrators. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I actually enjoyed the story. I had not heard of E.J. Copperman but I think fans of Juliet Blackwell’s Haunted Renovation series would really like this one. Alison is a strong leading lady, single mom, and she can see ghosts which is problematic at times. This particular element has a twist in that one of the ghosts is a private detective trying to solve his own murder. What ensues is just a fun who-dun-it with ghosts, moms, daughters, PTA’s, and house renovations. Overall this was just a ton of fun and I can’t wait for the 2nd one to come out in audio (these are older books so they are already out in ebook).

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Amanda Ronconi / Length: 10 hrs and 3 mins

Amanda Ronconi simply rocks in most cases and this was no exception. She pulled off Allison, her daughter, her mother, and the two ghosts extremely well. Her timing was dead-on and the personality used was perfect for the characters. I totally recommend this one on audio!

Final Thoughts: Night of the Living Deed surprised me with fun, ghosts, and a leading lady I could root for!

  1. Blackwell is on my list to read, but I have read several similar and really liking the ghost/paranormal feel of some cozies. Will definitely put this on my list to try.

  2. This sounds right up my mother in law’s alley Felicia, she would just love this I think. And perfect timing, I think it might make a fantastic stocking stuffer. Cozy mysteries for the win!
